Start your Kyoto vacation at the Tea Ceremony Room Ju-An set inside the Jotokuji temple. You will leave your Kyoto holiday with the lasting memory of your private workshop at the Grand Tea Room Ju-An.This private workshop runs from Monday to Friday and is conducted in English; since it is private, all of the attention will be on you while you learn the principles and inner workings of the Japanese Tea Ceremony Ritual and words such as: Wa - Kei - Sei - Jaku - Chashitsu - Kissaten.Each private workshop lasts about 70 minutes during which you will learn and observe the way of tea in a tranquil, uplifting atmosphere. The visit includes a guided tour of the Temple and the purification water practice.You will also be given guidance on making matcha green tea by yourself using a bamboo whisk, followed by a Japanese sweet delicacy and a going away donut/snack. You will also receive a personalized certificate of attendance about four weeks after your private workshop session.
